having the clarity of God; and her light was like unto a most precious stone, even like a jasper stone, shining like crystal.
And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal, and in the midst of the throne and round about the throne were four animals full of eyes in front and behind.
And there shall be no night there; and they need no lamp neither light of the sun; for the Lord God shall give them light; and they shall reign for ever and ever.
And the material of its wall was jasper; but the city was of pure gold, like unto clean glass.
Gold cannot equal it, nor can diamond; neither shall it be exchanged for vessels of fine gold.
And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion and upon the places of her assemblies a cloud and darkness by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night because over all glory there shall be a covering.
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
The sun shall no longer be thy light by day; nor shall the moon give light unto thee for brightness; but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light and thy God thy glory.
And over the heads of each living creature there appeared a heaven like a marvellous crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.
And above the heaven that was over their heads was the figure of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the figure of the throne was a likeness as the appearance of a man seated upon it.
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering: the sardius, topaz, diamond, turquoise, onyx, and beryl, the sapphire, ruby, and emerald, and gold; the works of thy tambourines and of thy pipes were prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Because of the multitude of thy trafficking thou wast filled with violence, and thou hast sinned; and I cast thee out of the mountain of God, and I cast thee unto evil from among the stones of fire, O cherubim that wast covered.
And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel that was coming from the east; and his noise was like the noise of many waters: and the earth shined with his glory.
It was round about eighteen thousand reeds: and the name of the city from that day shall be, THE LORD IS HERE.
And he that was seated was like a jasper and a sardine stone to look upon; and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
And the temple was filled with smoke from the majesty of God and from his power; and no one was able to enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
And I saw no temple in her; for the Lord God Almighty is her temple, and the Lamb.
And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
